One of the great draws for travelling the world and visiting amazing new lands, is the opportunity to find many things that we cannot find in our country. Those quirky pieces, whether they be jewellery, clothing, accessories or homeware are all the more special because of their uniqueness. Of course, it is not always possible to travel, so it is good to know that there are sites available that can offer pieces from around the world, one such site being Novica. The site unites us with more than 2000 artisans from around the world, offering unique gifts and a chance to learn more about the lives of those designing the products. Looking through the thousands of products available it was quite difficult to narrow my choice. In the end I chose a stunning glass painted tray by Asunta Pelaez in Andes and two chunky silver rings from Achara in Thailand.
